Thursday Thoughts

1. I've been watching the snow squalls all morning. And listening to the wind howl. And watching the trees sway. A lot. And listening to the heat run. A lot. The world is again white. Instead of thinking that it looks kind of pretty, I'm mostly feeling exhausted from winter. And being sad that all the new plants we had the landscaper put in last summer look like they are completely dead. Winter is totally winning this year.

2. That being said, I am sort of hoping for the snow and not the ice this coming Sunday so that we can try out the new snowblower. And by we I mean SP.

3. Tomorrow is the 10 year anniversary of breaking my femur. The day that changed everything. In just seconds. I wish I could just forget the exact day it all happened, but I can't.

4. Maybe tomorrow will be paczki day? Hint, SP. We haven't had any since January, paczki 'season' ends soon, and tomorrow is a crappy day. Paczki will make everything better.

5. I did not read any books this past week. I have been flipping through the 4 new magazines that arrived and some travel books, trying to plan a vacation.

6.  It took me 2 hours this morning to read the newspaper because I kept zoning out, staring out the window and getting lost in thought. I am having lots of thoughts. Sometimes I wish I could empty my brain. Or turn it off.

7. Scandal returns tonight!

8. Three weeks until spring!


  1. I bought Paczki today at the Oakmont bakery. We haven't tried them yet! They have many options, lemon, apple, "pittsburgh creme" , prune and a few others that I can't remember. I also bought some french macaroons for my daughter who loves them....oh and Irish soda bread for my Irish husband. I had to get out of there, I could have spent my paycheck!

    1. Yum! We ended up getting one last batch of paczki from Party Cake.
